Product Description


technical comment

  • Audiences around Britain and beyond became devoted followers of the Elias String Quartet’s Beethoven Project, in which the complete quartets were performed over the course of two seasons. This disc offers the chance to hear the fruits of the ensemble’s collective experience and deep thinking on the works. We are proud to release the second volume of this collection on the Wigmore Hall Live label which presents three masterpieces: String Quartet in F Op. 18 No. 1, String Quartet in A minor Op. 132 and String Quintet in C Op. 29. For the latter the Elias String Quartet is joined by Malin Broman who is in huge demand as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader. In this rousing concert, recorded live in concert at Wigmore Hall, the ensemble explores these works with sustained intensity and meticulous attention to detail.

    CD1: 1-4 String Quartet No. 1 in F major Op. 18 No. 1 (1798–1800)
    5-8 String Quintet in C major Op. 29 'Storm' (1801)
    CD2: 1-5 String Quartet No. 15 in A minor Op. 132 'Heiliger Dankgesang' (1825)

    “Rhythmically alive and emotionally responsive…this seems the most auspicious start to a Beethoven cycle.”
    Classical Music, March 2015

    “The young Elias Quartet, former BBC New Generation artists, offer a splendid introduction to the three periods into which Beethoven’s string quartets are usually divided in a well-recorded live concert from the Wigmore Hall. I’m already looking forward to the next instalment.” MusicWeb International, April 2015
